  • The windmills of Kinderdijk

    We went for a half-day trip to Kinderdijk, a little village close to Rotterdam known for its 18th century windmills. I brought the Canon 6d II and the 35mm f2 with me and took a couple of shots. The 6D II is really a pleasure to shot with which is why I actually bought it […]

  • Testing the Canon 6D ii

    I am testing currently a used Canon 6D ii. One feature that got me interested is the flippy screen and how close it apparently gets to a mirrorless camera. I am testing it with an old 35mm f2 (not the IS version) lens. So far I am really impressed and the touch-to-focus screen works really […]

  • Woodland Weekend

    Nikon D700 + Nikkor AF 35mm f2D. A walk through the local forest in the early morning. It was still a bit chilly (8 degrees celsius). Temperatures in the afternoon reached almost 18 degrees though. It was a nice 1.5h walk. We spent some time at a small creek while I was getting get used […]

  • Spring is (almost) here

    I am still mesmerized about the fact that the Nikon D700 is after all these years such a great camera and delivers absolutely incredible results. More than ever do I believe that no one needs the latest and greatest. This 12MP monster (yes it is a heavy beast) is more than sufficient. My iPhone has […]

  • Nikon D700

    This camera was once $3000. It was at the time it was released a far away dream. 12 years later I fulfilled my dream. Today, I took it out for the first time. I am absolutely surprised how good this camera still performs. Here are some example using the Nikkor 50mm 1.8G. Cropped, SOC with […]

  • When one door closes another opens

    So I recently sold my Canon EOS RP as I was not using it enough. Picture quality was outstanding (maybe even a bit to sharp?) but somehowe never really picked it up. I always preferred the Fuji X100V. As a matter of fact, most of the time I took my old Nikon D90 out. Just […]

  • The Storm Whale

    My sons favorite book right now is called ‘The Storm Whale’ by Benji Davies. What a blessing that we live close to the beach for him to experience the ‘real thing’. It was definitly stormy that day – no whales though. But he had fun collecting shells and riding his bike on the beach. The […]

  • Madrid – El Retiro

    A short stroll through Madrids‘s El Retiro park with the X100V.

  • Cartoons of the 80s

    My 2.5 year old told me the other day about Spider-Man. No idea where he got it from. Well that’s not true: of course kindergarten. But it made me think about my childhood: what were the cartoons I was watching? I found this great YouTube video summarising probably 80% of the stuff I regularly watched
